We had the pleasure of discovering and spending 4 nights at this beautiful B & B with an amazing staff for our destination wedding. Reading the reviews I was sure it would be a good experience. A couple of the nights we had almost every room booked with family and friends staying as well. First of all the regular rooms are not very big, but I wasn't wanting a suite as we weren't spending most of our time in the rooms. We stayed in the room with the French doors and the semi private balcony that lead to the wrap around balcony which was our favorite part. We all met out on the balcony quite often to enjoy the surroundings. If you climb under the bed, its true.. They should dust a little better under there but I have severe allergies and did not have any issues with it. On our wedding night my best friend switched us rooms and we stayed in the owners suite which was so nice and roomy! They were filming a movie on the eve of our wedding and we had a great time looking down and listening to the scene being shot in the laundry mat below. Angry Little God is the title and I will be looking forward to seeing it since we had that unique experience. The breakfast served was soooo good! I think my favorite was on the weekend when they served brunch. It wasn't included but I had to try the shrimp and grits and it was worth every penny!! The staff was amazing, nice, helpful, and fun!! We only had a bad experience with another guest who apparently thought they owned the place, telling us at 11:30 to shut up when we were saying goodnight to my in laws and the night before told us we stole THEIR chairs on the balcony. There are a couple plastic chairs on the balcony with no room numbers on them-ahem. Then again the entire time she was talking to her husband like he was an idiot and 5 years old... Some people are just miserable. We didn't let that ruin our time, in fact.. We are planning on going back next year for our anniversary and my daughters 21st birthday! With just a 6 or 7 block walk to the French Quarter, we may rent out the entire B & B if I can get a big enough group!! Until next time...
